Color is the most outstanding aspect of Gribin’s pictures — it is original… Her washes have a pattern all their own. The manner is casual, the poses of her figures, their attitudes, are almost offhand. It is her skillful drawing that gives us the subject matter.
“It’s not so much reproducing what I see,” Gribin said, explaining her painting style. “It’s the body language or the gesture of the model that I’m trying to capture.”
She creates a poetic atmosphere and a sensitive and refreshing rendering of the figure which is rare today.
The figures are emotionally loaded. It's not, however, facial expressions that carry the emotion but their postures and placement in space.
